Father's Day Gift Guide

The thoughtful and practical gift guide for the dads in your life

Have you bought your Father’s Day present yet? Father’s Day is a special occasion that only happens once a year, and it’s a time to appreciate the incredible dads in our lives. When it comes to choosing the perfect gift, going beyond the classic chocolate and selection of coffees, and opting for something more thoughtful can make a lasting impression. In this Morphée gift guide, we’ll explore a collection of thoughtful gift ideas that will be sure to put a smile on dads face this year.

A gift for the dad who struggles to sleep

Dad and daughter

Sleep is essential to the health and well-being of everyone, not just dads. On average, we spend around one third of our lives sleeping, which gives our body and brain the time to relax and regenerate. Whilst sleep helps our physical body repair our tissues and strengthens our immune system, it also helps our mental well-being in a number of ways.

So all in all, we have established that sleep is one of the most important gifts you could give anyone at any point of the year! But how do you give someone the gift of sleep? 

    • Aromatherapy diffuser. Essential oils like chamomile and ylang-ylang are known for their calming properties. A diffuser can help create a soothing environment in their bedroom which can help promote relaxation and help them get a better night’s sleep.
    • Sleep aid device. Morphée is our sleep and relaxation device that will help any dad unwind and fall asleep quickly, whilst also improving the quality of his sleep. Morphée has over 200 guided sessions that last between 8 and 20 minutes, which can be listened to before bed or in the middle of the night when they cannot get back to sleep.
    • A sleep mask. If you know a dad that is finding it hard to sleep, it could be due to the environment they are in. Darkness is a key factor when trying to sleep, a sleep mask will help to block out any light that might be coming from their room or the outdoors. Darkness also promotes relaxation and it stimulates the production of melatonin, the hormone that promotes sleep.

A gift for the sentimental dad

When it comes to choosing a sentimental gift this father’s day, the goal is to pick something that holds a special meaning and allows you to show your love and appreciation. Sentimental gifts often don’t cost that much and it can make a change from the classic sock and chocolate set you get them every year (or that might just be us…).

    • A photo album. Gathering cherished family photos and creating your own photo album can be a very thoughtful and wholesome gift idea this year. Whether you create an album of all your favourite memories you have had together or one dedicated to your favourite holiday together, you can sit down with a cup of tea and look through the album together and reminisce on the good times. 
    • A recipe book. Most dads love food, to make this gift all you need to do is compile a collection of recipes you know your dad loves or family recipes that hold sentimental value. In the book you can include handwritten notes or even stories about each recipe and how they connect to a special memory.
    • A memory jar. If you live out of home or you don’t get to see your dad as much as you would like to, creating a memory jar with handwritten notes can put a smile on their faces whilst you’re not around. The notes can include funny memories spent together or things you appreciate about him; whenever he needs to feel some love he can pull out a note to remind him of it.
    • Quality time. Sometimes all a dad needs is some quality time with the people they love. Some of the most special times they can spend with their children is during their night-time routine. Settling your child down whilst reading them a bed-time story, or listening to their My Little Morphée is a great time to bond with your child and can create fond memories.


A useful gift for the dad that has everything

Gift ideas for dad

If your dad is anything like ours, he might just buy everything he needs when he needs it, making it very hard to buy a gift for him. Instead of buying something that might end up at the back of the cupboard and never used, here are some practical gift ideas.

Instead of buying something that might end up at the back of the cupboard and never used, here are some practical gift ideas.

    • A reusable water bottle. Now this may not seem like the most original present, but everyone needs to keep hydrated, including all the dads out there. Choosing a water bottle in their favourite colour adds that extra special touch that you thought about them and there are a few websites where you can personalise them for free with a funny message or a nickname you call them. 
    • A personalised wallet. Every dad needs a wallet and getting one that can again be personalised with his initials which gives it a personal touch. If you know a dad whose wallet is falling apart, this could be the gift for him.
    • A pocket knife. Most dads like to do a bit of D.I.Y throughout the house or they might love going on outdoor adventures. A pocket knife could come in handy in any of these scenarios and it also gives you a perfect excuse to ask him to help fix your draws that are falling apart.

A gift for the stressed dad

Best gift for dad

Dads, like anyone, can get stressed at certain points in their lives. Whether they are feeling stressed about work, having financial difficulties or are all around just stressed, getting them a gift to help combat this feeling is not only thoughtful, but also practical.

    • Morphée. Our relaxation device will not only help with the dad that needs help sleeping, it will also help those who are stressed. Morphée offers 210 guided-meditation sessions that can be performed anywhere and at any time. Morphée will help any dad disconnect from their day so they can enjoy a few moments of stress-relief which will hopefully leave them feeling more centred and relaxed.
    • Colouring book. If you know a dad that loves getting creative and is arty, a stress-relieving colouring book could be your answer. There are a number of adult colouring books that can be designed specifically for stress relief by providing a creative outlet for them to unwind. 
    • A herbal tea set. Herbal teas have been used for centuries as they are known for their calming properties. Teas such as chamomile, peppermint and lemon balm can offer that sense of relaxation and help to promote their well-being.

Whilst choosing a thoughtful father’s day gift this year, think about what would bring them joy, what would they need or want and what they didn’t know they could ever live without until you gave it to them this year.
